NSWBA VET'S PAIRS - BOWRAL BRIDGE CLUB - ONLINE

Video includes photos of Sherri Gates (in Berrima) and Chris Jack (in Moss Vale) while playing in the event online.

Club member, Rob Ward, ran another very successful State Veteran’s Pairs over the weekend for Bowral Bridge Club - online.  The event attracted 58 pairs to the three-day event, including members from BBC and SHBC.

Congratulations to winners:

 Robert Krochmalik, Silver Grand Master (Sydney Bridge Club) and Paul Lavings, Emerald Grand Master (Illawarra Bridge Club).

Dennis Watkins and Roger Conway won the Restricted Category (under 300) besides finishing second overall.

The accolades directed toward Rob and Tournament Director John Mcilraith toward the end of the event, showed that many players enjoyed themselves and had a lot of fun.  

At the end of the Sunday session, Rob thanked John McIIrath, not only for directing the three-day event but also for his continuing encouragement for Bridge in the Southern Highlands.

Over a thousand dollars was raised and has been directed to the Bowral Bridge Club account for forwarding to a local charity.

Participating Club pairs and members were:

♠ Sherri Gates and Christine Jack ♠ Sue Whyte and Gael Golla ♠ Michael Bembrick and Anthony Ractliffe ♠ Mardi Svensson and Pip Phillips ♠ Moira Weate and Margaret Hutchinson ♠ Jan Fennell and Barbara Boag ♠ Kate Kerr (with Margaret Hibbert) ♠ Richard Evans ( with Libby Tonkin) ♠ Ann Duncan ( with Susan Stewart).

Thanks also to Chris Bayliss, Vivian Brown, Sue Walker and Rob Ward for acting as substitutes for the three days.

The top local male and female pairs were:

Craig Curry and David Weatherall.

Mardi Svensson and Pip Phillips.

We congratulate them and thank club members for participating and supporting their club in this event.

The final results can be found here.

Bowral Bridge Club welcomes members and guests of all levels of bridge experience at our friendly club.

We are ABF and NSWBA affiliated.

 Duplicate bridge is normally played on Monday at 12.30pm and Thursday morning at 9.30am.

The club has been closed for face-to-face bridge since March16, 2020, due to the covid-19 virus.

The committee is working to keep in touch with members and to explore ways to play online.

We have moved through a comprehensive calendar of bridge events for 2020. 

On July 24-26 we hosted the NSWBA State Veteran Pairs Championship online.

Our comfortable card room overlooks the lush trees and fairways of the historic Bowral Golf Club.

Delicious delights made by the golf club's chef are available throughout our sessions, including freshly made scones, sandwiches and coffee on arrival.

A superb lunch menu and local wines are also available - by the log fire in winter - or on the verandah on warm, sunny days or evenings.

Members are missing our club environment and contact with friends and looking forward to the resumption of safe face-to-face bridge in the future.

Partners can be arranged by Bob Young or Thelma Huxham who will be delighted to welcome and assist you.

If you are a visitor, our club is a short walk from town.
